(laughter) in what world does that look like a discarded business card? physicals it's a business card for an arc builder, maybe. but it really does look like a tattered piece of papyrus. you can't just say something in the voice over and expect to us go along with it in the off chance that our eyes are closed

there in addition to barack obama's was bill clinton's well received speech, the obama campaign knows that that played really well. they focus group and test everything. and the ad that you've seen more all over the country from the obama campaign is this choice ad where you see bill clinton talking about the choice in this election. the obama campaign out with an ad just this morning that also brings bill clinton in. and then pivots to barack obama. so the obama campaign really playing up the clinton speech. and i think the romney campaign if they wind up losing will look back three months and say what a that is it was to build up bill clinton as this truth sayer for the republican party to say, oh, barack obama's in the like bill clinton. the problem is bill clinton's alive and he can speak for himself. it's not the same as democrats trying to invoke ronald reagan. if reagan was alive, he would probably make the case for mitt romney, but chin linton can make case for himself. >> and it also doesn't help the republican cause that he is undeniably the most popular living politician th

clinton bounce. bill clinton made the case, hey, his job was to do what? make the argument the country is on the right track. at least as far as democrats were watching that speech and that convention, and it looks like some independents, they made the case. >> you're so smart, chuck. i didn't think of it that way. let's check in with chris. the idea what they needed was affirmation, they needed confirmation, the democrat who was wavering, independent whovs wavering and they heard bill clinton analyze the economy, how it got where it got, where we're headed gave people an objective survey of economic confidence, it seemed to lift them in some way. we're not stuck. it's getting better. >> yeah, look, what he did, chris, is something president obama has struggled to do which is to say, look, he went beyond just saying, i inherited a mess and now it's a little better but it's not great. just saying, i inherited a mess and now it's a little better but it's not great. he said, let's go back and look. here are raw numbers. here's the data from when i was the president. here's the data from w

this thursday, please welcome back to the program president bill clinton. (cheers and applause) >> thank you, thank you. >> jon: let me ask you, so give any good speeches lately? or, how did that feel at the convention? could you tell that you were crushing it as you were doing it? did you feel that? >> yes and no but, you know, what i mean by that is i work so hard on that, for weeks and weeks and weeks. and then the white house designated bruce reed who worked for vice president biden now, and worked with me for eight years. >> jon: right. >> and worked with erskine bowles on that budget project to help me. and gene sperling, the national economics adviser who also worked with me for eight years came in and we worked the last day and a half after doing all this other work. and i was just determined to get the facts right and i, and to simplify the argument. >> right. >> without being simplistic. i didn't want to talk down to people. i wanted to explain what i thought was going on. >> jon: that's what was so stunning, i think, that was why it was such a bracing speech. the phrase you mentio

are beginning to be more optimistic ever since bill clinton's speech at the convention where that was the catalyst or not, people feel a little better about things getting better. anyway, romney was asked today about that politico piece you wrote in an interview with telemundo. here is what he had to say in response. let's watch, to your piece. >> i've got a terrific campaign. my senior combine people work extraordinarily well together. frankly, these process stories take away from what's really of concern to the american people. >> no changes in your campaign -- >> no, i have got a good team. >> let me go to -- do you want to respond? these process pieces. a minute with you here. to me that piece talked a lot more than -- there was a lot of backstory there, a lot of importance. you wrote about process, sure, about how the campaign can't have a coherent message. the biggest message was it doesn't have a clear sense of why he's running. joy, do you want to jump in here. he called it a process piece. that's an interesting shot. >> chris, it was interesting. that was a ceo talki

seem to turn the tables on them very strongly. the more prosaic argument that bill clinton made was, frankly, we think we are all in this together as a better philosophy than your on your own. ashought obama's except speech was a little underrated, but he kind of addressed directly when you talk about the importance of free enterprise and his belief in it. he said we also believe in something called citizenship, a word of the very essence of our democracy, the idea that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to each other and to future generations. seeing democrats stepped forward and start claiming the founding documents, this is what the country is about, it really sets of a very high level philosophical mano y mano. what was your impression? >> when romney picked paul ryan, we were under the impression they wanted a philosophical debate. after the first 48 hours of that, i did not get the sense that the romney campaign was particularly invested in having a big debate about how austerity, the size of government, are making sacrifices today for long-term fiscal

's running right now, and you heard bill clinton say nobody can -- that's what people -- anyone who's gone from 30% right track to 39% listened to him when he said nobody could have done any better. now the mantra is it was such a mess and the problems have been so long in building that it's going to take more than four years, and people must be giving him the benefit of the doubt to be in such a poor position and to still say i'm going to give you another chance means that you're not necessarily tagging him with what happened. >> well, a couple of things about that, joe. throughout obama's presidency, when we asked the question is the economic mess something that barack obama caused or that he inherited from president bush, you've gotten a majority of people -- or at least a plurality saying it was something he inherited from bush. nevertheless, that was weighing down his poll numbers and his approval rating, and the right track issue, it's just gotten late bit better and bill clinton seems to have contributed to that. >> thanks, john. >>> coming up, we have senator begich from alaska.
